it with karl rove. he served as deputy chief of staff and senior advisor to president george w. bush. he is a fox news contributor. karl, welcome. that spot tells the story of a family in north carolina who received an insurance rebate because of obamacare. what do you think about promoting the president's health care law based on that kind of a, you know, monetary rebate? >> well, it's not going to do too well for a reason very few people are getting those rebates. those rebates are a part of the,#: affordable care act called the medical loss ratio. this provision basicallyally says insurance companies have to take 85% or more of the premium income they receive and pay it out for medical bills. if you don't pay out at least 85% of the premium income for medical bills, then you have to give a rebate to everybody that, is a policyholder. now according to the centers for medicare & medicaid services at the department of health and human services, last year, we're talking about rebates gone out for last year, that was the reference in the tv ad, 2.7% of americans are getting a rebate. so on

because they were uncontrolled bureaucracies under george bush. i expense them, and he did, too. he goes back to the thing we kind of started out with, is the federal government is out of control. but it's been predicted by all the historians that our republic will fail. so the question is how do we cheat history? how do we go back? how do we really base -- we embrace the things that made america great. as i said earlier i think we have to get in charge. i've been working for nine years to try to make a big difference. i have made a small difference, not a bi big difference. by me, i've worked every day trying to do things. that i'm convinced the only way we do that is the states exert their tenth amendment authority and start reassessing -- [applause] changes to the constitution that restore federalism and a constitutional republic. and so i think that's the way. you are frustrated. you ought to see me in washington. asked by staff. i want people -- ask my wife. i want to pull my hair out. you know, i see it into things. one is, i see the constitution and i see what's happening to it. a
